BOTOX® Las Vegas treatments are currently hailed as being among the fastest and most effective procedures for reducing fine lines and wrinkles across the brow, around the eyes and around the mouth. Given that they do not require any significant recovery time, these procedures are often referred to as the “lunchtime facelift”. Although you may notice a number of instant changes across the treated areas immediately after these injections, many people have noted that the full effects of BOTOX® can take up to one week to manifest.
How BOTOX® Works
Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that develop as the result of facial movement. These are tiny creases that typically form in areas that move the most, whenever facial expressions are made. With BOTOX®, our provider will be effectively blocking the nerve signals to expressive muscles in areas that are showing the greatest signs of dynamic wrinkling. As this FDA-approved solution takes effect, the expressive muscles will be temporarily relaxed and all stored tension will be released. This has a smoothing effect at the surface layer of the skin. Best of all, our provider will use only a modest amount of the solution to help you attain beautiful results. Moderate use of the solution makes it possible to create a significantly more youthful-looking visage without negatively impacting a person’s ability to make a broad range of facial expressions.
Why You Need to Wait for the Full Effects
After your very first BOTOX® procedure, many nerves throughout the treated area will be immediately responsive to this solution. More often than not, however, it will take some time for your body to respond to this change. Upon leaving our office, you may see a noticeable lessening in fine lines and wrinkles right away. After two to three days have passed, the targeted expressive muscles will become increasingly relaxed to create a much smoother look overall. In fact, you can expect to see continued improvements for up to seven days after your injections.
Having the Injections Repeated
The effects of the BOTOX® solution typically wear off after about three to six months. At this time, full nerve functionality will be restored and the expressive muscles will regain their former range of movement. In order to preserve your new, line-free look, you will need to have your injections repeated. Many people have found that the effects of their BOTOX® injections last significantly longer after having had several treatments performed. This is often referred to as muscle conditioning. The less that the expressive muscles are used and the longer that these muscles remain relaxed, the longer they will invariably take to regain a full range of movement.
